The Social Media Marketing Book

chris44larsen Why are all comments not relevent to book/review? (87 comments)

Why is it that every comment for this review talks not to the review or the book? Has anyone read the book? Do they differ with the reviewer? Has anyone gone to Zarrella’s web site? All the banter is about extraneous topics. Focus people, focus!

Confessions of a Public Speaker

chris44larsen Re:I'm slightly less positive.... (111 comments)

sorry, replied too soon. i thought your review was a bit critical >>The images are pretty shoddy – over dark and with not enough contrast; they’re not very well constructed either, in that there’s an awful lot of distracting background ‘fluff’ in some of them. this is a book on presos, not photography. no? >>The print quality isn’t great – I know heavily bleached paper isn’t great for the environment but just a little more whiteness would have made things easier to read, particularly by the light of my bedside light! Get a light dude!! :) >>In short, well worth the read. So after all, you really did love it!!

chris44larsen Re:Why didn't anyone write comments about the book (111 comments)

It is not that they digress, it is that so many people on /. have ADD/ADHD, that by the time they get to write the comment, they lose context. :)

chris44larsen Why didn't anyone write comments about the book? (111 comments)

Is it me, or is it that most of the comments below are about secondary issues, and not directly related to the book and review. Is digression part of the Slashdot mantra?

chris44larsen Re:': Look out! Here comes an 's'! (111 comments)

what is the correct use of the apostrophe in this case? and since this is Slashdot, does such religious devotion to grammar really matter?
